S02E04: “A Montage of Memories From an Editing Career”

Ken Zemke is an Emmy-award winning film and television editor whose career spans over 50 years, working all over the world.

In this episode, host Tara Jabbari sits down with him to talk about his career – from his mentor, Michael Kahn (the editor that Steven Spielberg works with), to his work as supervising editor overseeing a young Martin Scorsese’s edit for an Elvis music documentary, to why he left the States for New Zealand. They discuss the differences between editing films versus documentaries, television versus feature films, and much more.

Ken’s most rewarding work is his documentary show, Baha’i on Air, which is now mostly available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/bahaionair

Tara even edited one of their most popular episodes, “Samoa: Yesterday, Today, & Tomorrow” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvx7ji0Pss&t=6s
